There has been an important medical breakthrough in the US/UK. Researchers have discovered a vaccine for skin cancer which reignites the body’s immunity system to reverse and many times cure the cancerous areas.
Dr Howard Kaufman, of Chicago’s Rush University Medical Centre, said: “Our study shows we may have a cure for some advanced melanoma patients and a drug which has real benefits for others.
“This will save thousands of lives a year.”
A study of 50 patients with advanced melanoma who had been given no more than nine months to live found that 16 per cent of them recovered completely with the vaccine. They have been disease-free for more than four years.
Not surprisingly, this breakthrough came without the need for embryonic stem cells, so no young human beings were destroyed in the discovery of this wonderful cure. The more scientific details can be found here.
